Even Japan's classic symbol bullet trains cloudn't bear Typhoon's brunt.

Rescuers had to swim their way out of meters high water.

The aerial view of Japan seemed a bit like this in most places.

Multiple vehicles were left stranded after the floodwater passed through.

The after-scenario was a painting of destruction in its highest form.

Multiple lives and livelihoods were brought to roads.

At present, the situation is under control in the country and rescue teams are flocking in to bring daily life to normal the soonest as possible.
